Shared Reference Notes
- Subspecies of the #Rothia genus have been identified as playing a critical role in the degradation of gluten within the mouth and upper gastrointestinal tract. - Gluten proteins are difficult to digest by mammalian proteolytic enzymes and recent studies have highlighted microorganism derived enzymes which aid in breaking down these proteins. - #Rothia spp., contain not only the enzymes necessary for protein degradation but also have enzymes that target the immunogenic epitopes that play a crucial role in #Celiac Disease.
- CD14 seropositivity is responsible for three times increase in the risk of having #Schizophrenia in comparison to control group. The same CD14 seropositivity was associated with gluten antibodies in newly diagnosed patients with #Schizophrenia
